This was a custom order for a vanilla cupcake with white whipped cream frosting. A picture was sent to the seller, and she made exactly what was requested. Very pleased with purchase : looks just like the real thing ! Thank you so much for your incredible talent, and making this piece just perfect ! 😊

About

"If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way" ♥ Napoleon Hill

For me the venture into the wonderful world of Mini Food Jewelry started in the winter of 2012... While trying to fill a void in my heart & my creative life back then, I started building up a miniature Dollhouse I had been collecting piece by piece through several magazine issues. In each one though, there were pictures & instructions on how to create your own miniature food for the doll house kitchen using Polymer Clay!.. Excited by the idea I went online to look further into this fascinating art that had escaped me up to then and with the first search I stumbled upon mini food jewelry pieces in Etsy..... Well, that was IT for me!!! :-D
Being a professional Graphic Designer but growing tired of the constant work through computer and craving for some genuine handmade creating I just couldn't help but try this!.. A short time after, I sat down with my newly purchased clays & tools around me... When I realized that I managed to create two perfect miniature croissants in my very first try while having incredible fun doing it, I was completely and forever more mesmerized with this beloved art form..... ♥

A few more months went by, full of experimenting, brain storming for ideas, food dreaming both awake as asleep and miniature food creating around the clock!! I was determined to open my own little shop here in Etsy and that cause literally drove me!... Searching for the best possible concept to present my miniatures as to how realistic in shape & color they are but at the same time so tiny, led me to personally photograph them next to real food for better comparison. Built a handmade light-box & after endless hours of tryouts & work, you can see the end result around my shop. They tell me it has now become somewhat of a trademark of mine in the Polymer Clay circles of Greece and it's something I must admit to be a bit proud of... :-}
I opened up my shop at the end of August that year with my first 33 listings! And it's been a truly AMAZING journey ever since, in so many more ways that I could have ever imagined... ♥

Honest to heart, all my love, care and attention go into every single piece I create... A smiling face and a joyous heart is all I seek in bringing to everyone with my food jewelry, as life is too small and goes by too fast not to find pleasure & happiness in the... mini things!! ;-)))

Lots and lots of hugs & kisses to ALL
xoxo ♥
Ada

    Although he is THE cutest, he's not much help around my studio! Makes his presence known mostly when he wants to eat -all the time if he could choose to- but my Mini Food doesn't interest him... Probably doesn't "taste" like anything yummy to him :-P

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

My favorite part of being an artisan is taking up custom made orders! Do not hesitate to contact me with any ideas, requests or questions and I promise to give my all in creating the food jewelry of your dreams. Any change in color, size, jewelry type etc can be made in all my listings, so your "mini food" will completely fit your personal style and... "taste"!
Custom orders are bought beforehand, through a listing that states in it's text all agreed and once completed then photos of the finished piece are sent for approval from buyer before shipment.

Care instructions

Please keep the jewelry, accessories & miniatures out of reach of small children as they contain very small parts. They are not to be used as toys.
Be sure not to wear the jewelry when showering or swimming. In case an item needs cleaning, dry brush or use a baby wipe, very gently. Keep away from water & alcohol.
Due to ceramic parts & in some cases other delicate materials and of course of the extended use of glue, all items must be handled with care. I do my absolute best when gluing, assembling and creating all my products but sadly no glue can guarantee it will resist forever. Convo me with any alterations you may encounter so I can offer my help or advice on how you can care for it.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Jewelry items (except when indicated in the listing) come safely wrapped in the beautiful "Hugs & Kisses" gift box as shown in last picture of all listings.
In some cases, especially when items are quite small or belong to the same theme set you may receive less gift boxes than items. If something is intended as a gift, please let me know by message when checking out, so that I use a separate gift box. Can also include a handwritten special note if you'd like.
Keychains, bookmarks & charms come safely wrapped in the sweetest organza bon bon pouch in the colors of "Hugs & Kisses”.
Lastly all orders are also sent inside a bubble-padded envelope.

Scented Jewelry

I would strongly advice to store your scented jewelry in the scented tissue paper & clear plastic bag they were sent in, when not worn, so they can preserve their scent even longer.
I use the best fragrances in the market for scenting my mini food creations and although my method of adding them to my creations is time-consuming, detailed & complex, however I cannot guarantee exactly how long the scent will last on each miniature. Every scent has it's own characteristics and some are stronger & more lasting than others.

Postal Services

Shipping is worldwide from Athens, Greece in Europe. All orders are shipped via the Greek Postal Services (ELTA) and delivered by the recipient's National Postal Services accordingly: USPS, Royal mail, Canada Post, etc.
They are shipped as Registered Mail, therefore each parcel has a tracking number & the recipient's signature is required upon delivery.
All items will be shipped to the address indicated by Etsy, unless other specified.

Production time

All items are made to order. Production time takes 3-8 business days after payment is cleared. In case you need something sooner contact me and I'll do my best to speed it up and make you happy.
Orders of 5 items and more and also orders that are over $100 may need more days to be completed. This will be discussed and agreed with the customer by message asap after their purchase so that we come to an agreement that fits us both.
Custom orders may vary on the working days needed according to difficulty and work load. This will be discussed & agreed with the customer before the purchase.

Wholesale availability

I am open to discussing wholesale orders. Please contact me to agree on quantities, details & cost.

Food Jewelry turned to Dollhouse Miniature

All my Food Jewelry can be made without the jewelry parts so that it's turned into Dollhouse Miniatures and vise versa. If you see something in my shop (or even a food or dessert you don't see here) that you would like to have as a miniature for your dollhouse as it is (food-wise) or altered, feel free to contact me to discuss the details.
